Plenty to See and Do in Rockport

The quaint fishing village of Rockport has been a favorite coastal hideaway for Texans since the 1880s when trains brought vacationing passengers from Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio to the sunny shores of the Gulf of Mexico. Enjoy a leisurely lifestyle with golf, fishing, and the sunny beaches.
